UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE!

by

I cannot believe it. WE ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS!

I have been waiting for this day for a long time.

I have been waiting for this day since rooting for Roenick, Chelios and Belfour. Seeing Roenick cry after the game almost made me shed a tear.

I am so happy right now. I cannot describe what’s going on. I stuck around through some tough days with this team. Seeing all the likes of Eric Daze, Joceyln Thibault and Rene Borque was a bad time for the Blackhawks but I stuck around.

My statement stood corrected when I said the Blackhawks will only go far as long as Antti Niemi is the goalie. And it did.

June 9th, 2010 will be one of the greatest days of my life.

I will be at the parade Friday morning in Chicago. If anybody is going, please let me know and we will celebrate this one together. Especially a good friend of the site MadCityMac. If you’re reading this Mike, you should seriously consider making the trip down here. We don’t know when we might celebrate a championship again.

    I posted this earlier in the previous thread:

    YES YES YES! Chicago has a winner…I only saw the last few minutes of regulation and overtime…but that was truly action packed hockey.

    What a great series…gotta be good for the NHL…Philly was relentless to the end, a worthy opponent.

    Roenick got all choked up post game…interesting.

    Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks players and organization!

    I bet the Golden Jet, Mikita and all other remaining players from 1961 are enjoying this, too…

    CONGRATULATIONS to the MIGHTY Blackhawks!!! I have been a Hawk fan all of my life-since I was about 5 (about as long as the Flubs). My uncle played high school hockey and got me into the Hawks.

    I was scared after Philly tied this at 2 games apiece. I felt pretty good tonight the way the Hawks were dominating and then fuck, I lost it when they gave up that tying goal. However, this team doesn’t believe in pissing its pants. Thanks Hawks, for disproving this “Team of Destiny” shit about the Flyers-killing the team that would not die. The better team won. Good chance at a few championships with this mostly young and now very experienced team.

    I’ll admit I didn’t follow them as closely after 1998 when their playoff streak ended-but I always cared and knew how they were doing. They had a resurgent year in 01-02 only to flop in the first round to the Blues. THANK YOU ROCKY WIRTZ!!! I am so glad someone in Chicago knows how to run a sports franchise! Thanks to Dale Tallon for all the great personnel moves he made. Has any franchise ever undergone such dramatic positive change so quickly?

    I THINK I will be at the parade Friday. I will know more later Thursday.

    I am going to go on a little spending spree for Hawk Championship Merchandise-I do that for my teams that WIN.

    Flubs are you listening? The Hawks did he following this season:

    Ended the longest championship drought in their league
    Did not piss their pants when things got tough
    Proved that “destiny” does not beat you
    Disproved a hex-Hossa Hex is no more (and without an orthodox priest)
    Showed complete respect for the loyalty and knowledge of their fans

    Congrats again Hawks-I am proud to be a fan of you. Flubs? Fuck you!!!

    Nemo,

    Good to see you check in again. Let me know if you are coming for sure or not and we will definitely have a burger together.

    Dale Tallon should get his name on that trophy. NO QUESTIONS.

    It’s nearly 1:30 in the morning with work at 9:00. I won’t sleep tonight. I am on a high right now.

    Chicago has 5 teams in the 4 major proffesional sports

    1985 1991 92 93 96 97 98 2005 and 2010 what are those years the years the bears won the super bowl the year the bulls won the nba title the year the sox won the series and the year the hawks won the cup I am getting a little tired of waiting for the other team

  5. MadCityMac Says:

    Fro, I am SERIOUSLY considering coming down. I heard it’s going to start near/on Wacker, then Michigan Ave., etc. Where the hell should I park? I can actually get the day off!

  6. MadCityMac Says:

    Fro, you’re still in Dekalb, right?

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    Mike,

    I am still in Dekalb. There are some places where you can park in the suburbs and catch a train but that’s a pain in the ass. Stacey was going to come with me but she has to work on Friday morning and she needs the cash.

    I am either going to my sister’s in the city tonight or leaving early tomorrow morning. If you want to catch a ride with either me somewhere or I can meet you somewhere in the city to park, let me know.

  8. Fro Dog Says:

    Mike,

    If you still have Keith’s number, you should ask him if he is coming down too. Maybe we can all meet somewhere during the parade or after that. Let me know because I am not sure what I am doing until after I get off work at 7:00.

  9. Nemo Says:

    I’m vacillating here guys. The main issue is needing someone to watch the dog on short notice-getting there and back, the rally, shopping, eating, and visiting etc. would probably take 14 hours or even more. Wonder if I can find a hotel near downtown that takes dogs? guess I need to research it.

    I’ll check back in later today.

  10. Nemo Says:

    Well, I am pretty sure I will be there. They are talking about 350,000 people at at the rally.

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    Nemo,

    Do you know where you are parking? If you know where Comiskey Park is located, I use to park there all the time to take the train. It’s very easy to park near there and the Red Line train is right next to it that takes you to downtown. I am still awaiting Mike’s response and what him and I are going to do. It would be nice to get a few guys from the site to be at the parade and have some burgers afterwards somewhere.

  12. genrebuster Says:

    Really wish I could make it guys….I might be in-town for the Crossroads festival weekend of 6/26 but tomorrow is just not possible…have fun!

  13. Fro Dog Says:

    No problem Genre. We should defintely have a burger together if you do come to town at the end of the month. And I will for sure post some pictures of the parade sometime over the weekend.

  14. Nemo Says:

    Fro,

    I am just coming up for the day and it seems I will be hitting the Chicago area around rush hour. I was thinking of taking Metra from one of the south burbs

  15. Fro Dog Says:

    Nemo,

    I am leaving Dekalb around 8:00. I basically said screw it with the Metra Train and just decided to drive into the city, parking by Comiskey Park and catching the Red Line to downtown. I am still awaiting word on what Mike might be doing.

  16. Christopher K. Says:

    Fro,

    Wish that I could join you tomorrow for the parade. I wanted to take the Metro Link from Naperville to downtown. But I just don’t have the cash right now to come up from Peoria. Should be a great time!

  17. Nemo Says:

    Ok, well we need to pick a place to meet-either before or after.

  18. Fro Dog Says:

    I emailed you my number so you can text me on your location during the parade. I’ll try my best to find you. It’s going to be a pain in the ass to get there and then try to find a place to stand.

  19. Nemo Says:

    thanks, Fro.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
